Fall in Philadelphia

14

Nov

As you may know, I moved from North Carolina to Philadelphia about a year ago (you can read about everything I learned about living in Philadelphia so far here). While it has been an adjustment living in a new state, one thing I absolutely love about living in Pennsylvania is autumn. The area in N.C. where I lived mostly had pine trees and there weren’t many pretty autumn leaves, so fall in Philadelphia has been magical for me! I absolutely love watching the sunrise through the red colored leaves and all the purple flowers and bright mums that are in bloom now. As you may have read in my October post, I’m so obsessed with autumn that I got Matt up before sunrise on a weekend so I could get photos of the sunrise by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Boathouse Row! (It was totally worth it).Β 

Since I’m so obsessed with autumn colors, you know I took a TON of photos. I featured some of them on last week’s post on Boathouse Row (which may be my favorite photography post so far), and I have the rest of the photos of fall in Philadelphia on this post! These are mostly from along the Schuylkill River Trail near the Philadelphia Museum of Art and from FDR Park in South Philly (which I will have a post on in the future), and I would love to hear any recommendations on where else I should photograph!Β

    Beautiful photos! I don’t stop to appreciate the beauty of autumn nearly enough. Mostly because I’m bitter because it means Winter is coming lol

  4. Great photos and lovely macro shots, esp the thistle – v Scottish πŸ˜‰ It’s funny how something so common (even mundane, one might say) can be inspiring to someone else – like you said that you weren’t used to the colours of autumn and get such inspiration from it. I find myself missing the pines and evergreens as moved from a mixed (leafy but with pines too) climate to somewhere where nature is so barren at wintertime.

    I can totally relate to this as I was living in Southern California for 10 years before I moved to Chicago. My eyes had been missing fall. This time of year is definitely one that I love to see! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Fall in Philly looks just amazing! I never thought to have Philly on my travel list, but I may need to add it!

    Wow these photos are amazing. So crisp that I can just feel the cool air!

    So nice to find more Philly bloggers – even if I’m just temporarily here – but I love being home this time of year because it’s so pretty, definitely my favourite time to be in Philly

  9. I miss Philly autumn, too! Strolling down Center City, seeing the colors in Rittenhouse Square, all bundled up with a scarf and hot drink in hand. You find all the most interesting little nooks and crannies in Philadelphia. Love the photo of the bricked bridge (?) in the middle of the wilderness.
